Since its inception in 2010, the M-PESA Foundation has been keen to partner with Kenyans on large scale and long term highly impactful social projects. It aims to promote Health, Education and Environmental Conservation for the social and economic benefit of the people of Kenya.
We continue to implement large- scale and highly impactful community projects across our three pillars. All our projects are partner implemented. These include Uzazi Salama, a Maternal and New born health project and LEAP, a project to train Community Health Volunteers under our health pillar.
In education, we are supporting bright children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds through the M-PESA Foundation Academy as well as the Starehe Girls Centre.
Under environmental conservation, we have invested in a fencing project of the Mau Eburu forest to curb recurring human-wildlife conflict, in partnership with the Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) to conserve the Nairobi National Park through the Nairobi Greenline project. We also partnered with Reteti Elephant Sanctuary to help protect the orphaned and abandoned elephant calves in the Sanctuary.
Under Integrated livelihoods we partnered with the Kenya Red Cross Society to rehabilitate Nyalani dam in Kwale County to improve food security and livelihoods for the people of Kinango.
